Kentucky will play UCLA in the CBS Sports Classic in New Orleans on Saturday, December 23, and now we finally have a game time.
According to the New Orleans Advocate, the Cats and the Bruins will tip off at 3 p.m. Central Time at the Smoothie King Center. Ohio State and North Carolina will be the first game of the double-header, tipping off at 12:30 p.m. CT. Both games, naturally, will be on CBS.
The fact that this game is so close to Christmas kind of stinks, but if you really want to, you can fly out of New Orleans after the game to make it home by Christmas Eve. Or, you can stay in Nola and party with a bunch of Kentucky fans and take your chances at the airport the next morning, like me.
Tickets for the game are still available on Ticketmaster.
